Turns out that time Kevin Gates straight up round-house kicked a female fan in the chest wasn't self-defense! Imagine that!

You may recall the August 2015 incident where the 2 Phones rapper was caught on video forcefully kicking then-18-year-old Miranda Dixon after she reached out to touch his shorts while he was on stage in Lakeland, FL.

He later tried to defend himself under Florida's controversial "Stand Your Ground" law, claiming he used "necessary force" to protect himself from Dixon.

Listening to Miranda's testimony on Wednesday, the jury found the 30-year-old guilty of misdemeanor battery and he was sentenced to 180 days in jail.

To top it off, the state reportedly only asked the judge that Gates serve just 60 days in jail, with one year of probation, and mandatory anger management classes — but that request was TRIPLED to the now 180 days. Woof!

Rapper Kevin Gates Claims Self-Defense After Forcefully Kicking 18-Year-Old Female Fan In The Chest

So… Kevin Gates straight up round-house kicked a female fan in the chest — and now he's claiming self defense!

Back in August, the 2 Phones rapper was caught on video forcefully kicking 18-year-old fan Miranda Dixon after she reached out to touch his shorts while he was on stage in Lakeland, FL.

Miranda and her family have since pressed charges against the 30-year-old, who already has a criminal history.

According to new legal docs obtained by TMZ, Gates' camp is claiming that he was acting in self-defense under Florida's "Stand Your Ground Law."

Gates is saying that Dixon tried to grab him twice during his performance — and since he says he gave her a verbal warning to stop after the first time, he had the right to kick her.

Kevin claims that he thought the victim was trying to pull him offstage so he did what he needed to do to defend himself. He's asking the judge to dismiss the charge.
